Some Blood Indexes of the Tortoise Testudo graeca Linn., 1758, From Benghazi Province, Libya

Eman Ali Farag Hamooda, Abdulla Mohammed El-Mansoury, Abdulwahab Raof Mehdi

Abstract: - Hematological and chemical tests have been used as tools to report some blood indexes means and confidence intervals (95%) of the adult "Moorish" or "Greek" male and female tortoises, Testudo graeca Linnaeus, 1758. The area of study was limited to Benghazi province, Libya. Cardiocentesis was employed to obtain blood samples from 25 males and 25 females, which apparently looked healthy tortoises. The anticoagulant of choice, when it was needed, was lithium heparin to avoid destructive effects of the potassium ethylenediaminetetraacetate on cellular elements. Means of the erythrocytes counts as well as confidence intervals of both sexes were below the million per cubic millimeter.
